I would describe myself as:
Extrovert and shy; intelligent and funny, with strong but not fixed opinions.I love debating ideas and I enjoy a challenge. I love walking, sailing,swimming and cycling, (don't do any of them enough).(I've done a fair amount of cruising and I have my Coastal Skipper Cert). Music is hugely important to me. I love all sorts of music, esp Jazz,Irish Traditional,Rock,Indie, classical and music from other cultures and countries. I also love dancing and am a pretty good dancer. I sing a bit, mostly with a small group,and I'm getting back into reading and am loving it.I have an abiding interest in development issues, with a more specific commitment to West Africa. I follow sports, including rugby, soccer and the major Golf competitions.. I enjoy internet social networking.. and even more, I love meeting and making connections with people and I am very loyal to all my long-term friends.
If you have no photo and/or more than two or three "Ask Me Later"s on your profile, please don't contact me.
My ideal partner would be:
Someone who enjoys me as I am.Someone who loves a wide range of music and conversation, has an interest in the outdoors, (especially hill-walking and sailing) politics and environmental issues, enjoys people, dancing and laughter.. someone who is open-minded and knows himself a little.
My ideal date would be:
a light-hearted, uncomplicated event.. maybe just a coffee or a walk, a meal out, maybe a jazz gig or other music gig.. and then, maybe, see if we want to take it from there
